BEMIDJI, Minn. (BSU Gymnasium) -- A balanced scoring attack helped the Bemidji State University women’s basketball team to a 79-57 win over University of Minnesota Crookston on Saturday afternoon at BSU Gymnasium.
Four Beavers scored at least 12 points, including 13-point games from junior guard Brooklyn Bachmann, sophomore guard Trinity Myer and freshman center Rachael Heittola, as BSU improves to 6-4 overall and 3-3 in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.
BSU took control of the game from the tip as Bachmann scored a layup from sophomore forward Claire Wolhowe for the opening score of the game. From that point, the Beavers went on an 11-2 stretch to begin the game, including six of the team’s first 13 points from Bachmann. BSU shot 76.9 percent from the field and held UMC to 27.8 percent to head into the second quarter with a 24-14 lead. The Golden Eagles stayed within double digits in the second period before the Beavers extended its lead after a 41-32 halftime lead.
Junior center Taylor Bray scored BSU’s first four points of the second half, which helped the Beavers to a 15-point, 50-35 lead four minutes into action. The Beavers continued to dominate through the fourth quarter, taking a game-high 25-point, 74-49 lead with four minutes to play.
Bachmann, Heittola, Myer and junior center Taylor Bray combined to score 51 points while the team finished the game shooting 53.3 percent from the field. The Beavers controlled the paint with 52 points in the lane compared to just 26 for the Golden Eagles.
Bemidji State will take its holiday break before returning to action Jan. 3-4 with a road trip to face University of Minnesota Duluth and St. Cloud State University.
